What are Wall Street analysts saying about Deciphera Pharmaceuticals stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Deciphera Pharmaceuticals stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, LLC is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on addressing key mechanisms of tumor drug resistance. Its drug candidate includes DCC-2618, DCC-3014 and Rebastinib which are in clinical stage. Deciphera Pharmaceuticals, LLC is based in WALTHAM, United States. " (11/13/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are Overweight on DCPH with a 12-month price target of $53 based on lead asset DCC-2618 (in 4L GIST). Compelling safety and clinical activity data were presented at ASCO ‘18, which we view positively when compared to SOC sunitinib in earlier 2L patients. We believe the recent data de-risks the P3 program for 4L pts, reads on the broad potential in GIST & other malignancies, and reinforces our conviction in the platform/clinical strategy. In addition, emerging ‘2618 data in 2L/3L pts suggest superiority to SOC in terms of response rate & durability, a clinical profile that could drive ~$2.7B in peak sales." (10/3/2018)
  • 3. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We continue to expect DCC-2618 durability in GIST cohorts will be a key focus for investors. The Phase 1 is assessing DCC-2618 in 3 separate indications, GIST (cohorts for 2L, 4L, and 5L), advanced systemic mastocytosis (aSM), and glioma/ glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). In November, Deciphera initiated pivotal Invictus trial in 4L GIST and plans to start second Ph3 Intrigue 2L GIST trial by year-end. DCC-2618 has US and EU orphan designation." (8/13/2018)
